Faculty of Education

The Faculty of Education commenced operations with Professor Jegede as Acting Dean.  He was succeeded by Dr. A. Ikeotuonye (now Professor) during which period, the University of Abuja law, Decree 106 of 1992 published in 1994 came into existence introducing a collegiate system.   This development saw the Faculty merge with Arts to become the College of Arts and Education.

The College of Arts and Education at inception had five Departments namely Counselling and Science Education, English and Literary Studies, Foundations, Arts and Social Science Education, History and Theatre Arts.  By 2000/2001 academic session, the collegiate system was jettisoned by the University Senate in favour of a Faculty system, and the College of Arts and Education was split into two entities: Faculty of Arts and Faculty of Education.   The Faculty of Education became a full-fledged faculty with two departments: Department of Counselling and Science Education with four Degree programmes, and Department of Foundation Arts and Social Science Education with four Degree programmes as well.
